hmmmm.. I need to check out the box score. Just like no pitcher should be bragging about shutting out the Sox right now, Jose having a good game in the minors might be an illusion. I hope not, but I'm not going to get my hopes up

Default That's great

His first start at Charlotte was 6 IP and no runs. However, he had 5 BB/ 5Ks that start. Still ,very good so far.

Or that his stuff is good enough to get out kids in the minors, but not good enough to get out professional hitters who have seen him and know the book on him...

What I'd like to know most is whether he could get his forkball over for a strike. Or at the very least get it close enough to a strike that it's tantalizing.

We're going to need Jose if this team has plans of going anywhere, so hopefully he can turn it around. I think he still has something left in the tank.

breaking stuff in the show is nothing like they've seen in the minors
if Jose could hit his spots consistently, he could be pitching again for us at the Cell

That's good to see. I think the most impressive thing about the whole situation with him seems to be his attitude about wanting to go down to get lots of work in to get the control and feel for pitching back.

I agree. The man has his ego in check. If he could somehow turn things around, it would be a very cool story.

Yes, I totally agree. A lot of vet players-maybe even most of them-would never agree to going back to the minors to work on their game like he has. Good for him.
